cloud-solution-provider---csp---program

According to a Gartner survey, 81 percent of companies say they mostly or completely compete for business on the basis of customer experience.[1] In the highly competitive Cloud computing space, most businesses have their workloads and applications in the Cloud, finding a partner with outstanding customer service is the key to effective Cloud management. The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program provides you with the greatest customer service advantage when it comes to selecting a partner to help your organization save time and headache through expertise, responsiveness, and dedicated support.

A Microsoft CSP helps you navigate the complexities of the Cloud, while showing you how best to take advantage of the power of Microsoft 365 and Azure. There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a CSP for your organization. There are numerous CSP partners, all varying in levels of expertise and the services they offer. Some of the considerations include evaluating the business health of the CSP, the support they can provide, their technical capabilities, and the breadth and depth of their security offerings. Choosing the right CSP for your organization is a crucial decision to ensuring the success of your Cloud initiative.
